Webinar: Creating Caring and Culturally Responsive PreK–3 Classrooms

“To change the outcomes, we have to change the experiences.” – Dr. Sharon Ritchie

Join us for a free webinar exploring strategies to create culturally responsive and emotionally supportive preK–grade 3 classrooms for children from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds.

Register today!

April 24, 2018

11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time 

The early elementary years lay the foundation for school and life outcomes, so what can we do to improve early school experiences and set all students up for success? Hosted by Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northwest, this webinar will feature Dr. Sharon Ritchie, national researcher and principal investigator for the FirstSchool initiative. Ritchie will discuss strategies for:

  • Using classroom observation data to motivate change, guide professional development efforts, and engage in collaborative inquiry to improve teaching practices in preK–grade 3 classrooms
  • Creating culturally responsive classrooms in which all students feel like they belong and are competent, valued, and safe

Ritchie will be joined by two elementary school principals, who will discuss how these research-based strategies can work in schools and classrooms.

Teachers, administrators, child care providers, nonprofit staff members, equity directors, state and local education agency staff members, and anyone interested in optimizing pre-K–grade 3 experiences—particularly for Black students, Hispanic students, and students from low-income families—are encouraged to attend.

This webinar is co-sponsored by Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes (CEELO), Children’s Institute and the Northwest Comprehensive Center.
